? >> seriously, michael steele, what is going on with mitt romney? >> this is the guy, this is who he is. >> and in 2012, we're going to get him out of the white house. >> he won the most states, he won the most delegates. >> you have to give him his due. >> why does mitt romney still look like a big bowl of cold mashed peas? >> you don't need people that will crawl across broken glass to vote for mitt romney. >> the reality will settle in and they'll understand, mitt romney is going to be the nominee. >> if you don't run chris christie, mitt romney will be the nominee and we'll lose. we'll lose. >>> the limbaugh aftershocks continue. president obama's re-election team wants you to never forget what mitt romney did not do when rush limbaugh attacked georgetown law student sandra flora. >> there's an mri for the soul and people learn about you, along the way there are tests. we saw one last week when rush limbaugh engaged in that horrendous outburst against the young woman law student from georgetown. and the republican candidates were asked to comment on it. and romney first refused and
for republicans to reach out. herman cain is a very strong supporter of mine. i worked for years with michael steele. j.c. watts is a very strong supporter of mine. i have had a more managedical effort to include african-americans in my campaign than any other republican. i think this is part of this that i am proud of. professor of carnegie, leading african-american is endorsing me. i think there are a number of people who give us a much broader reach than the other candidates. >> greta: you know, i know your time is limited. every candidate's time is limited. but i have been monitoring this. i haven't seen one republican candidate and i have not seen president obama go into the inner cities in the last two years and talk to these people in the inner cities whose unemployment rate is dreadfully high and have that conversation. they are not going to the town hall meetings and not watching the news and they are excluded from the process. >> why don't you come with me and let's do that? when i was speaker of the house, we had town hall meetings in washington, d.c. i think i am the only speaker
are the first three we will hear from. bring in the former chairman of the republican party, michael steel. nice to see you, mr. chairman. >> hey, rachel, what's up? >> i saw you mixing it up with joan walsh about the politics of the rush limbaugh comments about sandra fluke, the nature of his apology, mitt romney's inability to say woe do anything other than use different language there you seem to think this is sometime a real fight about contraception that's worth having between the parties. do you think that this is what republicans and democrats ought to be fighting for, putting republicans in a good stead heading to november? >> no, i don't. that is exactly the point. i think all of this could have been nipped in the bud early, early on for the leadership of the party, particularly those candidates running for president, to -- you know, without hesitation just rebuke the profanity of the comments. to make it clear this is not a reflection of who we are as conservatives what we stand for as a broadly based republican party and i thought again, one of those missed opportunity for the leaders
:00 eastern tonight. here tonight, director howard feinman. and michael steele. both msnbc political analysts. and malika henderson. we've got brand new exit poll information out of illinois and the illinois primary voters. we asked which candidate would most likely beat barack obama? not surprisingly, nearly all of romney voters, 93%, said they thought their guy was most electable. but 28% of santorum voters said they saw him beating obama. howard, speak of sports, that means people would rather vote for the guy, at least in some locations, they deeply believe in rather than the guy in november. >> i think some of those people buy santorum's argument, that you have to solidify the base, and if the base isn't really excited, isn't ready to walk through walls, then that's a weak position to be in against the president. >> tweedledum and tweedledee argument. does it work? they're too close in the end to president and the moderate republican, former governor of massachusetts? in the end their too close to excite the public? >> i think there's some truth to that. i know that's a fear for a lot of
.m. pacific, joined by hogan gidley and the rnc's former chair, michael steele. "andrea mitchell reports" is next. hello, andrea. >> hi, welcome back, alex. good to see you. women are fighting back over contraception. it's becoming an issue in the campaign. we'll talk to romney and santorum teams. >>> plus, we'll have the latest on trayvon martin's case as members of congress say the federal government should investigate it as a hate crime. >>> exclusive interview with pakistan's foreign minister as the parliament there moves to restrict america's drone war. all that coming up right now. stay with us. this one's for all us lawnsmiths. grass gurus. doers. here's to more saturdays in the sun. and budgets better spent. here's to turning rookies - into experts, and shoppers into savers. here's to picking up. trading up. mixing it up. to well-earned muddy boots. and a lot more - spring per dollar. more saving. more doing. that's the power of the home depot. lay down a new look - with earthgro mulch, now 3 bags for just 10 bucks. for a hot dog cart. my mother said, "well, maybe we ought to buy
for hillary clinton. they don't have that kind of buffer. the way michael steele, the former rnc chairman, helped to set this up the last time and the rnc, they don't have as many buffers as the democrats did to prevent anything like that from happening, so there are lawyers in the republican party today looking up what happens if we get to the convention and nobody has 1,1 44. >> you're nodding, dana. >> well, i mean, there is a sense that republicans are being hoisted by their own patard here, and they deliberately tried to slug down the process. the primaries have proportional assignment of delegates that somebody couldn't just roll ahead with it all at once, and in a way this is a problem they very deliberately created, not expecting it right to turn out this way. that said, i think we in the media tend to look at possibilities and assign them rather more weight than they actually deserve, and i agree with joe that it's certainly possible that it will turn out this way, but history would indicate that that's not what's going to happen. >> dana milbank, joe, always good to see you. s t
a brokered convention. when you hear that, what do you think? that's michael steel who used to be the chairman obviously. >> i like michael steel. >> oh, no. whenever someone starts, i like -- i'm going to write that down as one of my phrases, i like. >> bless his heart, i hope you don't buzz me on this. >> you know what that means, chip. >> we know what's coming. this is not good for the party, to go through a brokered convention. i don't think that's what chairman steel's goal was. i think it was make the process a little longer. the last 20 years the nomination's been over in one or two or three states. now we have this very long process but usually we would be good. then we added super pacs to it so no longer do you win states to get momentum to stay in the race. now you just get one or two contributors to write really big checks and you can stay in the whole way and ultimately that may not be good for our nominee. now mitt romney is using it if he's the nominee to his advantage. senator santorum has used this time to his advantage to build a great organization that a lo
convention. michael steele said that himself. we are going to sit back and watch the drama. >> you make it a fight to sunday morning. thank you both. >> there are new fears that the rising price of gas could pose a serious threat to the recovery of the u.s. economy. the average national gas price is energy $4 a gallon and some economists say it could hit $5 and cause an immediate downturn. brenda buttner is here. >> hi. >> it impacts what you pay to transport the goods and that raises the price of the goods. so how severe is the impact? >> we have been luck thetime, as opposed to between the 08, there are a couple of thairngs different. number 1, some energy sources have been going down. we have seen natural gas falling. so consumers haven't been hit as hard by the rising price of gas. and they have been saving more as unemployment has been going down a bit. but we are right at a tipping point. >> you hit a key point. that's hiring from small businesses. some surveys are showing that small businesses are getting hit and they are about to start rising prices prices and they're about -- t
at santorum, it will be interesting to see what happens because when michael steele gave that same comment about limbaugh being an entertainer he got killed for it and was forced to apologize. i wonder what will happen to santorum. he may find himself in a bit of a glitch. the comments were out reasoningous and should never have been made. that goes without saying. >> why do you think mitt romney's comments are go good and why you think any of the front-runners on the republican side weighed in with a more aggressive condemnation? >> romney could have been a little more aggressive, but you don't pick a fight with rush limbaugh. >> is that what it is? >> yeah, to some extent, and plus he was able -- more importantly, politically, he was able to bring it back to the issues. he's going strong into ohio and he should stay on his message and not get tangled up into any of this conversation. >> ann, do you agree with that because my question to you is have one of the candidates stepped up and really condemned limbaugh's comments? might it should helped in the primary in do you think there's poli
. >> michael steel, a happy, happy man. i think he's the only one who is happy. no, haley barbour was saying this is not the worst thing in the world to have a contesting convention. he said, i don't think anyone in require thought rind -- right mind has thought this is good. >> maybe if he had never run before. but he's been out there, you don't need to learn fen who he is and allow for the mistakes. >> i think mitt romney is not the greatest can dat in the world. he's got skills as a businessman and other skills but i think being a political candidate is not necessarily he highest among them. some people get better after time, i don't think he does. >> it's like a programming note behind the scenes, there are certain operatives, certain officials when they say something, you really do have to listen. i put haley barbour in that category, put karl rove in that category, ed gillespie, who ran the reform n.c. an ran the bush white house for a while. they know so many people and are in constant contact with people across the country, it's tons of expertise, a mirror of what happened throughout
've established a few things. one is this. barber shops matter. remember back in february when michael steele and anita hill shared with us the agreement that barber shops have been and continue to be historically and contemporarily important places for communities to gather, discuss political issues, argue about news and information. if you're going to be joining us regularly, you get to go to the barbershop a lot. this week, we headed to the barbershop for one reason. to watch basketball. that's right. nerdland is in the throes of march madness and we decided that this was madness best experienced in a couple of barber shops in the heart of new york's brooklyn and harlem. >> i'm arnold. i've bp a barber since '89. we have the college court liu. a lot of them come to me for haircuts. >> we come here all the time. games with the fellas. we all like different players. differences of opinion. >> i put dell over nuchlt lv. >> they're more nba fan. my man, we big college basketball fans. so we haven't had a rowdy atmosphere yet. had this gets down to the final four, it probably get a little more
in the middle of march when mccain won texas and ohio. >> when michael steel said he did that intentionally, that he thought sort of leading up to a brokered convention made it high drama, i'm sort of quoting him. >> look, he was wanting to build excitement. look at what happens. >> it's not everywhere but in some cases. also a look at the conservative. romney's positions on the issues. two conservatives say 10%. 50% say he's not conservative enough. that's certainly sticking. >> we always look for historical pair parallels. in 1980 ronald regan was running against george h.w. bush. people were asking former president gerald ford to consider stepping back in the race. the point is not this that mitt romney or rick santorum or ronald regan. ronald regan wasn't ronald regan at this point. we continue to look at these guys struggling to win over voters. put that in context. it doesn't mean each one of these guys is absolutely awful and will lose to obama. >> history is always interesting. historically my knee jerk reaction is the disaffected will fall in line once there is a candidate. >> and
at "washington post" national political correspondent, dance all over but rnc chairman, michael steele. >> that began with a simple point. you've been writing about tomorrow being a pivotal point. how so quiet >> i think the importance of super tuesday this this year is that we will really care for the first time an indication of aa, how long this fight actually one. we know will go on for sometime, but the question is how long? and the question is, would there be any candidate who's been challenging governor romney who comes out of super day with a realistic chance of winning the nomination? we've had ups and downs, different people rising and falling. romney has been kind of a savvy competitor, the person to be. but after tomorrow we're going to have a better sense of the totality of this phrase in the degree to which governor romney has the advantage of the rest of the field. >> dan, we've been touching on a number of issues with the student including the money, organization, infrastructure, what is the worst possible case for it to marinate for someone like a mitt romney? can he ge
with us. >> michael steele. pew research says 3 in 10 republicans say their opinion has worsened since the primary began. >> he knew it was a man of steel. maybe he wasn't buried at sea. there's a report that the government might be keeping a big secret about that guy, usama bin laden, his body actually came to america? we'll tell you about that. >> then the president has seen a spike in female support. are republicans doing something wrong? can they win back that vote before the november election? that debate with those two ladies coming up. forty years ago, he wasn't looking for financial advice. back then, he had something more important to do. he wasn't focused on his future but fortunately, somebody else was. at usaa we provide retirement planning for our military, veterans and their families. now more than ever, it's important to get financial advice from people who share your military values. call now for our free guide and tips on planning for your retirement this tax season. if you have painful, swollen joints, i've been in your shoes. one day i'm on top of the world... the n
robust. because we're seeing some concerning data in terms of steel production that would indicate otherwise. >> michael, let's talk about investing, given all of this, that we're going to see next week. you favor qualcomm and gold right now. are these long-term plays? >> qualcomm is a short-term as well as a long-term pad. i think as the ipad 3 comes out next week and we have the whole new version of the apple frenzy, it will affect it in the right space. the sell-off that happened this week was quite interesting. gold rallied up to only being down 5%. i think that gold is going to continue to be a play, because inflation is eventually coming around the corner. if i could make the comment about greece, i'm of the belief that greece is just really in a slow default right now. the greece problem is really not solved. i think they're trying to throw trial balloons out so eventually greece defaults. as for china, as you know i'm in asia quite often, i think china is going to avoid a hard landing. you are already starting to see them adjust bank requirements. they'll probably put a sti
back machine, at one point, hyman roth told michael corelone the combined enterprise had surpassed u.s. steel, back then that was a big deal. these days u.s. steel is a $4 billion company versus apple's $545 billion. at the time we had two leaders of relatively dubious note. chevron's on the eve of the epic run and total collapse in oil, almost $100. and alcoa, holy cow, alcoa $40 then. that was just when china decided to flood the world with aluminum and just when the cost of making the stuff spiked, collapse in profit margins, collapse in stock. in other words, the last time we were at these levels, the dow was being led not by the u.s., but chinese growth. now the dow has a whole new crop of leaders. jpmorgan, arguably the premiere banking institution on earth. >> buy, buy, buy! >> ibm, a spectacularly well run international consulting company tremendous intellectual capital, caterpillar, which may be levered to china, may have an ace in the hole with the u.s. market given that the last time the average was twice as much business in this country as it's doing now. it's the subtext
the confederates are doing. steel no banks. where is banks? banks has decided not to come up with his men marching across south louisiana. he is dealing, as he inaugurates the new union governor, michael honda, who had been a union senator from louisiana. and he is just fastidious with all of this. these wonderful goings on trying to show that louisiana is going to be a fine union state. at the same time, 20,000 of his men are slogging across south louisiana. they go by rail from algiers across from new orleans, to what is today oregon city, by rail. and then they have to march through those south louisiana swamps, buckshot, black dirt gumbo. my grandmother used to call it grow taller but because it sticks to your shoes and you grow taller. they march all the way across to the little bitty town of washington. today it is st. landry parish. and then from there, they head north east to alexandria. it takes them a week to do it. it's miserable. it's raining. the roads are bottomless. and then in the muddy pig and banks has given to voters that they will not go into a city if they look bad. so they ha
come back to steel stocks this month, including today. u.s. steel's 6% rally was the best among the s&p 500 stocks. despite today's rally, u.s. steel shares are down 40% over the past year. we also some after the close optimism from fashion designer michael kors. this company just came public late last year. shares were down 2% during the regular session, but were 4% stronger after the bell. that came after the company raised its quarterly earnings guidance even though it cautioned its revenue may be disappointing. it blames that on problems with a new distribution center delaying deliveries. the company also is taking advantage of its share price more than doubling since its initial offering. it is looking to sell more stock according to the "wall street journal." meantime, retailer kohl's fell 3% on heavy volume. in its annual report it says it will be less aggressive passing along higher costs to shoppers, hurting its profit margins. while the stock indices are running higher, so are bond interest rates, meaning bond prices have been moving lower. bond interest rates and prices mov
is served in the happy meal. >>> up next, what will ian michael black have to say about his new book? probably that you should buy it. >>> well, you know him from the state steel law. and he is a new york times best selling author. i think we have a picture. his book is called "you are not doing it right, tails of marriage, sex, death and other humiliations." when an interviewer hasn't read the book he often starts with the title. why the title? why does it need why "you are not doing it right." >> the title, greg and i know you have read it and i thank you for your thoroughness. >> some hosts wouldn't do it, but i did. >> right. >> the title comes from my wife and i went to am amsterdam for our honeymoon. she was teaching me how to smoke the marg rnlg ma. she was telling me i wasn't doing it right. five seconds later i was unconscious on the floor and i thought thatten cap sue lated my life. >> now to the table of content. i'm kidding. this book is funny, but it is not necessarily about fun thee things, is it? >> not at you will. well, it is about my life. whether or not you conside
